[15​:03] <bbkr> masak​: what is the expected behavior in
https://rt-archive.perl.org/perl6/Ticket/Display.html?id=72820 ?

[15​:06] <p6eval> std bb4f150​: OUTPUT«ok 00​:01 121m␤»
[15​:06] <benabik> &1? What's that mean? Does that return something
like `-> { return 1 }`?
[15​:06] <moritz> why doesn't that produce the same error as foo() ?
[15​:06] <moritz> benabik​: &foo returns a reference to the routine named
'foo'
[15​:06] <benabik> moritz​: Right. But I'm confused about it working on a
number.
[15​:06] <moritz> benabik​: so &1 would be a reference to a routine named '1'
[15​:07] <moritz> benabik​: and I'm confused about it not being a compile
time lookup
[15​:07] <benabik> std​: sub 1 { … }

[15​:08] <jnthn> moritz​: I think it may be parsed as an accidental

[15​:09] <jnthn> heh :)
[15​:09] * moritz did that, probably
[15​:09] <moritz> jnthn++
[15​:09] <bbkr> so this ticket should be rejected as not a bug?

[15​:09] <jnthn> moritz​: I think we may have always had it like that,
just never realized ;)
[15​:09] <moritz> ok, I just reused it :-)
[15​:10] <jnthn> .oO( let's call it a feature ;-) )
[15​:11] <jnthn> Guess a [ <?{ $<sigil> eq '$'}> <.panic​: '...'> ] or so
in the right place would catch it though.

There was a bit of discussion today on this​: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2016-07-06#i_12795274

Since the originally reported LTA error is gone, I'm going to close this. The 5-year old mold is starting to give off ;)

If you look at the log linked above it looks like a PR was going to be
submitted for this, but according to https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6-dev/2017-03-05#i_14208424
it didn't work, so this is still an open ticket.

@p6rt p6rt added the Bug label Jan 5, 2020

The logs have moved here. Still returns Nil, stil should be invalid I would say this is still an open ticket.
